Eagles hit nine treys in Dubois win

Dubois head coach Kyle Miller is a beekeeper, and the co-owner of his family business Wonderful Wyoming Honey. The start of Thursday’s tilt with St. Stephen’s must have felt like a hive had been kicked over as the Eagles swarmed the Rams with a 29-point first-period onslaught. St. Stephen’s rode a hot shooting opening half to a 51-36 advantage and never looked back in a 77-61 win.

The win was the first of the season for St. Stephen’s and was their home opener as well.

The game featured a scoring battle between Hunter Lonedog for the Eagles with 32 points, and Dubois senior Ryan Wells who had game-high honors with 37.

Lonedog opened the game with three 3-pointers and 11 total first-period points while Wells answered with four long-range treys. Well’s shots were all from 25 feet or farther out, and barely moved the net as they swished through.

While the duo battled back and forth, it was the remainder of the Eagles team that did the damage.

Cayden Lonedog, Stephon Lonedog, and Tyren Ridgely all scored with extremely accurate shooting as the Eagles pulled quickly ahead.

The scoring disparity slowed over the next three periods, but the Rams couldn’t make up the difference.

It is a family affair for St. Stephen’s with four Lonedog boys on the roster, and they all hit 3-point shots during the contest. Of the Eagles’ nine 3-point shots on the game, eight came from one of the Lonedog guards.
